Blythe Danner heads the cast of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies' Chekhov-inspired The Country House, which ends its L.A. run July 13 at the Geffen Playhouse. The play and its star will arrive on Broadway later this season. 

Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (Time Stands Still, Good People) directs the play that began previews June 3 and officially opened June 23 in Los Angeles. It is a co-production with Manhattan Theatre Club, which will present the Broadway run of the play beginning Sept. 9 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

Danner (Butterflies, Betrayal, The Commons of Pensacola) is joined by Scott Foley ("Scandal," "The Unit," "Felicity"), David Rasche (Speed-The-Plow), Sarah Steele (Slowgirl, The Netflix Plays), Eric Lange ("The Bridge," "Weeds") and Emily Swallow ("The Mentalist," Romantic Poetry).

According to the Geffen, "This witty and compelling new play provides a piercing look at a family of performers coming to terms with the roles they play in each other's lives."

Margulies' plays also include Dinner With Friends, Coney Island Christmas, Times Stands Still and Sight Unseen.
